On Friday, March 8, YHS staff and students joined the “walk in her shoes” challenge in support of Care Canada, for International Women’s Day. CARE Canada calls on people “to walk in her shoes” in solidarity with women and families struggling to meet their daily needs.
The walk began with a whole-school assembly in the gym that included speakers, a poem, and a special performance of “Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera by Maren, Skye, Alisa, and Kiki.
It was wonderful to come together for this school-wide community event in support of women and girls around the world. We walked in support of human rights, inclusion, hope, justice, equality, and people’s access to basic needs such as water, food, healthcare, and education.
